Update: Pampa Toddler in Critical Condition

After spending thirty minutes in near-freezing water, a Pampa three-year-old is in critical condition.

Police say the toddler was at a picnic with his family when he and another child wandered into the water.

His sister saw them and ran to get help, and the other child was rescued, but the three year old was too far out for his family to reach him.

It took rescue workers several attempts to pull the boy out of the water. He is currently at Northwest Texas Hospital.
